It’s because of the health conscious Jaipurites, the fitness culture has popped up in our city. If you are a regular gym person, you must be finding it a fun and exciting place to stay fit and then you already know the unsaid rules or say Gym Etiquettes. But for all those who are new to the gym, it’s better to know the basic do’s and don’ts. There are many important things including clothing, body odour, cell phones, space or equipment sharing and moreover the basic hygiene that one should be careful about.
Do’s at the gym
- Do ask your trainer before you start
Before taking the first step on the machine, ask your trainer what is best suited for you according to your health. Don’t just go with the flow and end up injuring yourself.
- Warm up
Warming up before starting your workout is a MUST ! Cold muscles aren’t that flexible so opt for gentle movements like walking or stretching that will help your muscle relax before going out on a meticulous workout.
- Keep your water bottle with you
Carry a water bottle with you ALWAYS! Drink plenty amount of water even before you get thirsty in between your workout because getting thirsty is believed to be a sign of dehydration.
- Do wear deodorant
After you are finished with your exhaustive routine at the gym, you may not realize but the odour of your body can prove to be a problem for others working out near you.
- Do wipe your machines before you start working out
You know it and there is no shying away from the fact that we tend to sweat during our gym activity. So why not carry a napkin and wipe off the machines/ equipment before using them? This way our hygiene will be safe in our hands.
- Do keep the weights at their proper place
Once you are done using the weights, don’t just leave them where you finished exercising. Keep them at their proper place otherwise, someone can end up getting injured. The gym trainers and owners are going to thank you later.
Don’ts at the gym
- Don’t focus on everyone’s workout
A basic rule to follow at the gym; focus on your workout instead of what others are doing. If you are really keen to learn what the other person is doing, then either ask him/her once he/she is finished his/her exercise or ask your trainer.
- Don’t use your phone at all
Talking while working out, especially when on a treadmill is not a really good idea. This disturbs your concentration to use the equipment and you can end up injuring yourself. Moreover, it disturbs others a lot.
- Don’t restrict yourself to training
Achieving your goals in the gym is a good deal, but don’t limit yourself to specific machines and equipment. The more you keep your mind open about your routine, the better you realize what you’re good at 😉
- Don’t use gym equipment without proper guidance
First day at the gym and can’t figure out which equipment is suited for you? Don’t worry, take the help of your instructor because a proper guidance on what and how of that equipment is a MUST!
- Don’t dominate all the machines at once
Shifting from one machine to another in a short span of time to break the monotony can be unethical because you’re not the only one at the gym. Other people are waiting for their turn, so be mindful and give each routine the time it deserves at one stretch.
Follow these simple rules at the gym and make your way to the fitter YOU !
If you’re thinking to join gym pretty soon remember to choose one which is best for you. The best infrastructure, experienced trainers, central location and for the ladies if you get pick up drop service go for that.
